Husker AD Trev Alberts reveals details of Scott Frost’s restructured contract
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A judge ruled on Tuesday that the University of Nebraska must release the metrics of former football coach Scott Frost’s restructured contract.
And Athletic Director Trev Alberts wasted no time, discussing the contract on Huskers Sports Radio later that day.
Frost needed to win at least six games and make it to a bowl game to return to the original terms of his contract.
“It really isn’t a huge secret,” Alberts said. “What I wanted from Scott, and we talked about it a lot, was incremental progress.”
After the Huskers’ 3-9 season in 2021, Nebraska restructured Frost’s contract.
Some of the changes, like the reduction of his buyout, were discussed publicly.
USA Today sued the university, seeking to make the other details public.
Alberts said the athletic department wanted the changes to be a verbal agreement with Frost, but the former coach wanted it in writing.
Now Nebraska will release the documents.
“We’re not going to appeal this,” Alberts said.
